The Atlantic titles their article “Here’s How Little Math Americans Use at Work”
Spoiler alert, in Precision Machining, we all use a lot of math through algebra, geometry trig and statistics.
“…the best blue-collar jobs do in fact require a level of mathematical literacy on par with what you’d expect a student to know if they were college bound. To me, that hints at an argument for more high level vocational programs: It might help if students actually knew that those boring equations really one day would earn them a paycheck.”
If you can do the math, the precision machining industry has a great job and career for you.
Miles, your timing is perfect as we are trying to get our county commissioners to approve a machining program at our local tech school. so i sent this blog to them.
Thanks Sam. Hope the program gets approved. We sure need the skilled people.
In precision machining, machinist use a lot of math through algebra, geometry trig and statistics. Tremendous work with this blog. It was really convenient from a reader’s perspective.
